The show, the second highest grossing in the history of the theatre, returned to the city this week for a month.

Glen Wilkinson, UK associate choreographer for Dirty Dancing and responsible for the moves the dancers perform, said they were amazed by the response of the Glasgow audience last time they were here.

He said: "Glasgow audiences definitely take Dirty Dancing to their hearts.

"We had thought we'd had a good run but then we came to Glasgow and people were up out of their seats, singing and dancing along."

The classic story of Baby and Johnny is sure to have audiences singing along again, with hit songs including Hungry Eyes, Hey Baby, Do You Love Me? and the heart stopping I've Had The Time of My Life.

The 2011 UK tour took an unprecedented £42,000,000 at theatres across the UK.

This year's show runs until September 20.
